The SCORPION ROV system has proven to be successful in addressing the ROV market requirements for high powered hydraulic work ROVs in a smaller package. SCORPION’s small size, high power and control flexibility allows the client to effectively address a wide range of applications.

The vehicle is a highly reliable multi-task vehicle, designed to accomplish a complete range of demanding and complex subsea inspection and intervention tasks. Sonsub’s SCORPION features high quality ffbre optic video and data transmission, and a 180
meter tether management system providing uncompromised performance.

In addition, the use of a single HPU allows the overall size of the vehicle frame and foam block to be reduced resulting in a low profile, low resistance ROV package with excellent hydrodynamic characteristics.

 

 

We try to provide the most up to date, recent specifications on these ROV systems. However, ROV system specifications are changing all the time, so please double check with the manufacturer to insure the specifications are correct before making a decision in using or purchasing these systems.
